This is a really nice sounding guitar and has a similar Ibanez branded cousin - can anyone tell me the model #? It isn't a literal copy of anything in particular but the combining of 2 Gibson designs into one works very well, I think, in this exercise. Comments? Questions? Z

One of these came up a few months back on ebay and someone here bought it.

I've got an ibanez branded guitar the same as yours zoner. They seem to be made up from various "left- over" parts from the factory. It plays really well and the tail piece and thick side binding looks's just good to play something that looks different from your standard L.P copies.

Here's a link to the messages concerning Graza's guitar. 496

Except for the name on the headstock and tuners, they look identical. I really like these. They look very unique. How does it play?

There is a subtle neck profile difference between mine and a Black Beauty LP Custom copy I have from the save vintage. The neck is larger and very rounded rather than being somewhat "C" shaped. The fretwork and construction detail on the neck seem to be better on the Sunburst model. I am very impressed with the tone of the guitar as well although I have yet to pull the pickups and see what they are. Thanks for the link to the old thread, I was having trouble finding my own previous post! Z
